Spanish film maker Jesús Orellana's neatly contained and unsettling world in the short film Rosa is littered with the remains of humanity and populated by creepy butterflies, cyborgs that bleed and roses that grow, stop-motion fast, from that blood. It has the veneer (and fighting style) of a first-person shooter, but with a delicate sensibility one might expect from Guillermo Del Toro.

Orellana is reported to be at work on a full-feature treatment. Can't wait.
